This is the first Father’s Day in years that I will actually get to spend with my dad. My girls are so excited to be going down to Florida to visit their GrandDude (that is what they call my dad), so when I asked them if they wanted to make him a special present for Father’s Day they were very excited.
My dad is not an easy person to shop for, (but really what man is), so it took me a while to figure out what we could make him that he would actually use and appreciate. Then, I thought of making him this penny frame. My dad is an avid coin collector so I am pretty sure he will really love this frame. I think the biggest issue may be him picking coins off to keep!
Both girls painted the frame. My little one is still a little young (she is 2) for the glue gun, so my oldest is the one that glued all the coins on. They are both, however, extremely proud of the project and even posed for a picture for me to put in the frame they made. Can’t wait for Father’s Day so they can give this to GrandDude!
- Photo Frame (mine was 4 x 6)
- Pennies (amount depends on size of frame)
- Black Paint (or color of choice)
- Paint Brush
- Glue Gun
Paint your frame black (or color of choice)
Once the paint is dry, use your glue gun to glue your pennies onto the frame
Now you are ready to give this great frame to dad or grandpa! Just find a great picture of the kids first to put in it!
